Update on Sunday April 15, before dawn:
Well, my calculations for hatch date were wrong. The peregrine eggs at the Cathedral of Learning didn’t hatch on April 13 or 14.
They didn’t even pip.
By the end of the day yesterday (April 14) no one could confirm the pip reported on the 13th.
I guess it was a false alarm. However, the eggs will hatch soon.
More news later.

Hi Kate. This is off topic, but I have to ask someone — and I realize you are not in charge of this — but I wonder why is there no volume control on the new video stream of the Pitt peregrines? I can’t watch unless I turn down the sound on my whole computer system, which I don’t want to do. I would hate to give up on the Pitt peregrines because of this oversight.
Natalie, the streaming provider does not provide a separate volume control on their video window — it’s just how their the feature set works. It’s not something their customers can change.
Natalie Picard, I learned from a friend that you can mute just one tab of your browser — how-to at this website:. https://www.howtogeek.com/231959/how-to-mute-individual-browser-tabs-in-chrome-safari-and-firefox/
However… in Chrome, clicking on the speaker does NOT mute, but right-click & choosing “mute site” does.
Hope just ate the first chick to hatch.
As of 8:15 am Hope killed and ate the first egg.
